MANY persons have from time 
to time endeavoured to express 
in terms of money the value of 
a knowledge of Pitman's Shorthand. 
The result, at any time, cannot be an 
exact one, but the attempt shows clear 
recognition of the fact that Pitman's 
Shorthand is a valuable asset. 

The ability to write Pitman's Short- 
hand rapidly and to translate it easily 
is certainly a commercial asset readily 
saleable at several pounds a week.

value of a 
Knowledge of 
Pitman's Shorthand 
is incalculable f 

THE acquisition of a 
thorough knowledge of 
Pitman's Shorthand is a 
perfectly simple matter* In 
every locality there is at least 
one teacher qualified to teach 
the Pitman system. For full 
particulars as to Classes, etc.

tution whose name and address 
appear in the panel below.

To whom Notion of Claims under the following conditions must be 

sent within seven days of Accident. 

p nrfj TWO HUNDRED and FIFTY POUNDS will be paid 
oO Zi J U by the above Corporation to the legal per- 
sonal representatives of any person who is killed by an 
accident causing material damage to the passenger 
train or steamer connecting with the Mainland, or 
tramway car or public omnibus (excluding char-a- 
bancs) in Buteshire, in which the deceased, was 
travelling as a ticket bearing or paying passengers 
or who shall have been fatally injured thereby, 
should death result within one calendar month 
after such accident, Provided that the person 
so killed or injured had upon his or her person (or had 
leitat home) this coupon, with his or her usual signa- 
ture, written prior to the accident, in the space pro- 
vided below, which, together with the giving of notice 
within 7 days to the above Corporation is the essence 
of this contract. 

This Insurance only applies to persons over 14 and under 65 years 
of age, is subject to the conditions stated above and contained in the 
General Accident Fire and Life Assurance Corporation Act, 1907, does 
not extend to cover death caused by or resulting from war or invasion,

WE have pleasure in producing another issue of our 
hardy Annual. 

The early numbers contained the Officials and House- 
holders or Buteshire only. The Anniversaries and Traders 
were absorbed from the West Coast Almanac, issued at 
the New Year, and embracing districts outside Buteshire 
— the phenominal success of which in Mid Argyll, led to 
the establishment of the printing office in Lochgilphead. 

Rothesay is the most attractive and best known. We 
would like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among 
the other districts. They have each and all something to 
be proud of. These cannot be properly appreciated until 
better known. In the present Directory we continue the 
four distinct parts. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; besides this, we send copies to 
the passenger steamers communicating with the islands of 
Buteshire, and these are hung up in their cabins, 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. Eor years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours — which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this mumber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries to be named by customers giving orders 
to the value of £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we will, on receipt of orders early, keep 
permanent this decided advantage. 

We again give list of Householders but do not aspire 
to compete with the official Voters' Roll — which can be 
had in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
•continual changes.

P.S. — Will the many persons who consult the Bute County Directory 
in the Libraries, Reading Rooms, Banks, Offices, Shops, etc. , through- 
out the County and beyond it, free of charge, please remember that they 
are indebted for this pnvliege to the patronage of our Subscribers and

As far as we can see, the information about Millport and Cuinbrae is quite cor- 
rect and thoroughly reliable, so we may take it for granted that the rest of the matter 
is the same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport News 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers have been so enter 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. It should bd 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac— 4>'drossa?i Herald,

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

The Helensburg h and Garelnch 'Times says this useful hand-book is brimful of 
information regarding the County of Bute. The public officials, lists of householders 
and business people in this popular health resort will be most serviceable Notwith- 
standing the greatly increased cost of production, the price of two shillings has 
been maintained. 


THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz, 
— Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrsiure Const; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothesay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791; 1831, 14,151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2'1 per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows : — 

Males. Females. 
Arran - - - 2,169 2,402 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 6,781 

Cum brae - - - 704 992 

*The Increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar- 
General compared with the returns lodged with the Sheriff-Clerk, 
may be accounted for by the enumeration of the shipping. 
the decreases since 1901 are as follows : Arran, 209; Bute, 330 ; Cumbrae, 62 — 601 

The population at the postponed 1921 census [taken in June instead of April] for the 
county, was 33,711 (13,880 males and 19,831 females)— being an increase of 15,526 

over 1911.

Parish of North Bute. 

'"PHIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*- village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connecled by tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannntynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730.

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with .Rothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the County of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
rom pre-war issues, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but the 
continuing of everythng as full as possible.

The Isle of Arran. 

r Y^ HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
I the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length, 
20 in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
in the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
eome very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued remindej 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing J°y Day Celebrations, — which were considered vei'y appro- 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec 
Mr George Biggie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
bo kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 
It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodil dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town art 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally foi 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated D 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

ShOPthand continues to be taught with a. view to its subsequent useful 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esperanto. — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts of the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
— notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
" great tribulation"— caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindranee 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business h'nns 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despost 
were be,aten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and frightful ness loathed. The 
longed- or League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrities, much 
Service and suffering. Prosperity will not come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-Keeping". — Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to- 
Date Business Methods. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro 
fession, and the ground-work and minutia; have long been familiar to Mr Higgie, » 
practical Printer.

Peace, honour and §ood 

More than Christians believe that the Whole Human Family 
will yet live together as Brethren. 
mtlE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity 
J- but our forefathers got separated and estranged. The confusion of toiigues 
did cause them to be irreligious, the phenominal success of the Boy Scout move- 
ment, generated by Sir Robert Baden Powell, demonstrates that latent good-fellow- 
ship, gratitude and honour can grow and mature. Long ago, the Prophet Zephaniah 
foretold the coming of a perfect language — which, in these latter times, the people 
are longing for in order to overcome misunderstandings and know and enjoy mutual 
intercourse in business and pleasure. The walls of Jericho fell very simply, and the 
liugual walls which have hitherto divided the nations, need no longer prevent all 
people that on earth do dwell — whatever their creeds, colour or idiosyncrasies — from 
satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of 

The International Language. 

Up-to Date Mariners use the International Code of Signals at sea. 
Up-to-Date Musicians use the International Staff Notation for Music. 
Up-to-Date Businesses use the International Arithmetic everywhere. 
Up-to-Date Persons all j use tbe lnternatlona , Lan&ua&e -j for in ! ei ™ m - 

over the World \ D D ( muntcation. 

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11 th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding the 10th ill Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was heldjthere, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held, at th Hague., Holland in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finland, in 1922; the loth at 
Niirnberg in 1923, the lflh at Vienna in 1924, the 17th the following August again at 
Geneva; and the 18th at Edinburgh, in 1926 (when the Holy Bible, in 
Esperanto, was dedicated in St Giles' Cathedral). National congresses are held an- 
nually in all civilised conntries, and international congresses in both hemispheres. 

Esperanto— the language of Peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken up the study 
of la kara lingvo. It is used at the great and happy international Jamborees — 
meetings so harmonious that they are appropriately closed by the singing of "'Auld 
Langsyne. "' 

Esperanto has been adopted by the League of Nations. League of Religions, and 
numerous business firms, tourist organisations and scientific societies everywhere 
It is, of course, regularly broadcast by wireless.
